Answer:
162.24 ft
Stepbystep explanation:
So you first find the area of one side.
5.2 x 5.2 = 27.4
Then you times it by 6, because a cube has 6 sides.
27.4 x 6 = 162.24 ft

A steel cargo container is shaped like a cube measuring 5.2 ft on each edge. we will need 162.24 ft sq. steel to make this container.
How to find the surface area of a cube?
A cube has all sides congruent, so all sides have the same area.
Supposing that the considered cube has a side length (also called edge length) of L units.
Then, its one side's area equals L^2 sq. units (as each side is a square, so we used the formula for the area of a square).
Since there are 6 such sides in a closed cube, thus, its surface area evaluates to
[tex]S = L^2 + L^2 + ... + L^2 \text{\: (six times)} = 6L^2 \: \rm unit^2[/tex]

So first we need to find the area of one side.
The area of a square = 5.2 x 5.2
= 27.4
For 6 sides of cube
27.4 x 6 = 162.24 ft sq.
